We have a vision of our home being an ethical cultural centre, with poly tunnels and bees, a forest garden, composting toilets and interesting workshops that share knowledge and improve wellbeing, a place that promotes and sets an example of self sufficiency and community partnership.

3 years ago we were living in a caravan among a lot of mud and 15 year old trees next to a house that had no roof or windows! Now after a lot of hard work, we are living in a partly developed house, with wood and solar powered heating, a composting toilet, lime plastered walls, chickens in the wood, veg beds and a poly tunnel on the way up. We welcome volunteers with the vision and enthusiasm we have to be part of our continuing journey.

Next steps . . . Bees, more lime plastering, developing the woodland as agroforestry, beginning organic conversion. looking at how to create a community here.

We are Amy (42), Mike (45), Ada (12) and Eartha (5)

We are hoping to find male or female volunteers who would be keen to get stuck into all aspects of what is going on at our house, so building work, being involved with the children, taking a share in housework and cooking. Particular building skills may be an advantage, but an enthusiasm to get involved both in the building work and our family life is the most important.
We home educate our children and have been learning Spanish as a family for several years (though we're still not very good!) so We would particularly welcome Spanish speaking volunteers.
